  • Sharyl Attkisson charges Media Matters helps produce news reports for CBS

    American Thinker ^ | 04/21/2014 | Thomas Lifson
    Now that she has left CBS News, Sharyl Attkisson is revealing all sorts of interesting facts about the way news is shaped by ideologues. Appearing on CNN’s Reliable Sources (transcript) Attkisson: “Media Matters, as my understanding, is a far left blog group that I think holds itself out to be sort of an independent watchdog group. And yes, they clearly targeted me at some point. They used to work with me on stories and tried to help me produce my stories, and at some point” (emphasis added) Well, well, well. So the Soros-funded group works with mainstream media journalists on stories, according to...

    (Screenshot: Comedy Central)As we mentioned, Stephen Colbert, heir to David Letterman's chair on "The Late Show," openly talks about his Catholic faith. It's a surprise to those who know the comedian only as the satirical conservative host of "The Colbert Report."In this April 2009 episode on Maundy Thursday, Colbert hosted Bart Ehrman, a prominent New Testament scholar and biblical critic.As Ehrman points out contradictions he's found in the Bible, notably in the crucifixion of Jesus, Colbert takes him to task in his usual acerbic tone. But under the caricature, Colbert presents the divinity of Christ in ways that leave...

    The showdown between federal authorities and rancher Cliven Bundy, his family and supporters in Nevada is one of those rare topics from the libertarian-conservative news agenda that actually made its way into the establishment media. Between last Thursday and Monday, ABC, CBS and NBC gave the story a total of nearly 16 minutes of coverage on their morning and evening newscasts. Network journalists have consistently framed the case as one of a rancher failing to pay the requested fees for his use of government land. But they have failed to use the case to tell the larger story of how...

    Rush Limbaugh and other conservatives have expressed bewilderment over CBSs abandonment of the American Heartland by choosing Colbert to replace Letterman. Ed Driscoll has contrasted the pick with the Letterman and Leno succession battle. But the real lesson of that battle is that while Leno won on performance, beating Letterman in the ratings, Letterman won on image, retiring as an honored figure, despite his abusive behavior, while Leno was booed out the door Leno is no conservative, but he left with the baffled bewilderment familiar to many on the right of being the better man who is despised for his...

But yet, it was blocked in the Senate by RepublicansWhat is going on here?

    It’s been a month since Sharyl Attkisson left CBS News, a departure which many assumed related to editorial interference with her reporting on stories that focused on Obama administration scandals. Attkisson appeared last night on Fox’s O’Reilly Factor and confirmed those assumptions. Attkisson tells Bill O’Reilly that CBS News labeled her a “troublemaker” for her insistence on sticking with stories such as the Fast & Furious scandal. CBS wanted her to drop the Fast & Furious story over “a lack of interest,” and Attkisson says that the “interest” issue was editorial rather than audience related.Newsbusters has the full transcript: ATTKISSON:...

The beginning of the end came on March 10, when U.S. Attorney Ronald Machen struck a plea bargain with a wealthy businessman who confessed he'd spent $668,000 on an illegal "shadow campaign" to fund get-out-the-vote efforts that helped Gray win the mayoral office in 2010. So the corrupt mayor of America's most important city is thrown out. A political scandal? The same networks that were utterly breathless over the local story of Gov.

Colbert 'first engaged with network executives' while Letterman was still thinking about the best time to retire, Mashable reports.

They also say Colbert has not yet had any formal contract discussions nor is there an agreement in place.

In some cases, the broadcast networks have failed to include such scientists for years, while including alarmist scientists within the past six months. ABC, CBS and NBC's lengthy omission of scientists critical of global warming alarmism propped up the myth of a scientific consensus, despite the fact that many scientists and thousands of peer-reviewed studies disagree.

    ....."Things have recently gotten even more curious. If a news organization with the resources to go to Wales and interview Mr. Davies wanted to do so in order to get some answers, they wouldnt find him at home. Hes in hiding. Just who would a charlatan opportunist, like the one hes being portrayed to be, want to hide from, Morley Safer? Davies contacted his publisher, Simon & Schuster by email and informed then he was going dark, this past Friday morning. The message indicated that someone had threatened to harm his family if he continued to defend the truthfulness of...

    Jeff Fager tells The Hollywood Reporter how the FBI's incident report prompted the news division's retraction of the story, defends anchor Lara Logan and describes why Dylan Davies was used as a source: "He deceived us. This is not some sort of rogue player. There were a lot of reasons to believe he was credible. We were wrong to believe that." An FBI incident report that directly contradicts eyewitness claims made by Dylan Davies about the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the U.S. embassy in Benghazi, Libya, was the "lynchpin" for CBS News executives' decision to retract an Oct....

    ... Well, its nice to see CBS bow to pressure from the left for a change instead of the right. See, Davies just published a book under the Morgan Jones pseudonym about Benghazi with an imprint that is a division of Simon & Schuster, which is owned by...CBS. So maybe 60 Minutes was pressured inside to hawk this guys story. So its already an interesting corporate media story and a black eye for Black Rock from that perspective. But what is the larger political relevance of all this? Well, Google Dylan Davies Hillary Clinton and youll see soon enough. Wingland...

    SCHIEFFER: The president said in the beginning that one thing was that if you liked the health care program you had, you could keep it. We now know there was debate within the administration before he said that as to whether that was actually a promise that could be kept. Should the president not have made that statement? FEINSTEIN: Well, as I understand it, you can keep it up to the time and I hope this is correct, but this is what Ive been told up to the time the bill was enacted, and after that, its a...

Correspondent Elizabeth Palmer reported Irans decisive involvement had helped turn the tide of fighting in Assads favor in several key battles and, this year alone, had lent Syria more than $3.5 billion to buy oil, without which the country would likely have collapsed.
